The Southgate Veterans Memorial Library is once again a Toys for Tots drop-off site!

The Marine Toys for Tots foundation seeks to make sure that every child receives gifts during the holiday season. Founded in 1947, the program has donated over half a billion toys, to hundreds of millions of children. The Southgate Veterans Memorial Library is happy to provide a drop site for the Downriver community.

If you’re interested in donating, bring new, unwrapped toys in during normal library hours of operation (Mon. - Thur. 10am - 9pm, Sat. 10am - 5pm). We are located at 14680 Dix-Toledo Rd., Southgate MI 48195, phone number 734-258-3002. We will be collecting donations through Thursday, December 12th.

Library Survey

Every few years, we try to collect surveys from library patrons; this year, we have surveys in the library, and online! The results help us see how we’re doing, determine areas where our services could be improved, and gives us some new ideas to consider. We ask about everything, such as staff and customer service, technology like our public computers, and programs, like story times and book clubs. Please, take a few minutes to fill out the survey, and don’t hold back! Your honest answers can only help us in making the Southgate Veterans Memorial Library a great place for everyone. If you have filled out the survey in person, or plan to, please do not fill it out here, we don't want to skew the results. Thank you!
